CS 1713 Section 3, Spring 1997
Introduction to Computer Science

Are you sure you want to be reading this? This is the Web page for CS 1713 section 3 in the Spring of 1997, which is now over. Maybe you want to try going back to my home page and click something else? If not, read on...

This is the World Wide Web page for CS 1713, section 3, Spring 1997. It contains several links to important information about the course. The contents of this page will change over the course of the semester; be sure to reload this page often (click Reload in Netscape or Mosaic, or CTRL-R in lynx). If you are unfamiliar with using the Web, select the underlined or highlighted word "introduction" in the paragraph below (click the left mouse button while the pointer is over the word in Netscape, or use the arrow keys to highlight the word and press RETURN in lynx). This will start you off on how to use the Web and other computer systems at UTSA.

Read my introduction to using computers at UTSA for information about how to use the web browsers, read and post news, compile programs, and get Linux software so you can do all that stuff and more at home.

Here is the syllabus for the course. It contains a description of the course, including how much each test is worth and so forth. Here is a detailed list of dates with the topics covered for each week, assignment and exam dates.

Here are the assignments for the course. Look here for more assignments in the future. Note: Late programs are not accepted. Late progress reports are not accepted. You are given enough time to do the assignments if you start early. Your lowest program and progress report grades will be dropped, so if you have an emergency and can't complete an assignment, your grade will not be affected. If you have two emergencies, bring me documentation and we'll talk.

Our class newsgroup is utsa.cs.1713-3.d . Go there for discussion of our class, and contribute if you like. You can also use the Unix program trn to read the newsgroup. (You can only read this newsgroup from a UTSA machine.)

See the first exam and its solutions.

The newsgroup comp.lang.c is a place you can follow discussions about the C language. Read the comp.lang.c Frequently Asked Questions list for answers to many of your questions about C.

Here is UTSA's official Web page . Read the Calendar of Events for information about dropping and adding classes. Remember, Friday, March 14, 1997 is the last day to drop a class and receive an automatic grade of W.

See the Division of Computer Science Web page for information about CS at UTSA.

Find here some sample C programs you can compile and run from your account. Note that some of them may require the -lm option to cc.
